TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Thinking Maps: Practical Applications to Curriculum Content Themes was created by a thirty-eight year veteran teacher of public-private and military school systems. Teaching grade experiences: Pre-K-5, middle school and high school. Subjects taught: Social Studies/History, Science, Language Arts, Mathematics, and Bible. Particular Services Student populations: Gifted, (Browns Mill, Ga.), I.C.E., Children-At Risk (New York pilot), Long Island Correctional Facility G.E.D. adult student population Grade settings: suburban (Long Island, New York), urban (New York & Boston, Mass.), military (United States Marine Corps-Camp Lejeune), private : served as curriculum developer co-chair @Greenforest Christian Academy-Georgia ,Children’s World Pre-School Inc., & University Heights Early Learning Center (Bronx, N.Y.)). Doctoral Study (New York University; Philosophy and Curriculum Design), Master of Liberal Arts (SUNY @ Stony Brook), Business Administration coursework: New York Institute of Technology (Westbury, N.Y.) Undergrad: Wheelock College, Mass.) and SUNY @ Stony Brook, New York, Avionics Technician: United States Marine Corps ; training: Millington, Tenn., stationed @ New River Air Station, N.C.. Ms. Calvin’s enthusiasm for the employment of metacognition strategy development is in support of high quality research, critical reflection and analyzing, creativity and experiential expansion is the purpose (Nia) of this material. Maximizing the various modalities and the thought process through which knowledge is gained is heightened when the students and teachers connect dynamic visual design to their own distinctive abstract cognition. This series is being created with the intention of offering teachers viable structured-well researched information in thinking map format for the various curriculums’ objectives within state standards and common core. It is purposefully prepared for the teacher to use because Ms. Calvin fully understands the limitations of time upon the classroom teacher in preparing the contextual information to teach a lesson to the teacher’s highest standards of instruction. As Mary McLeod Bethune so passionately expressed her commitment to education; “I leave you a legacy of love…”, and in the words of aviation pioneer- Bessie Coleman: “If I can create the minimum of my plans and desires there shall be no regrets.” So is the legacy Ms. Calvin hopes to leave to her fellow colleagues and students. Ms. Glenna Grant Calvin

MY TEACHING STYLE

There are certain styles of teaching I will employ--depending upon the student population that I am teaching. As a recent Science Lab teacher of over 650 students per week (22 classes from K-5th) I used a facilitator model teaching style to focus on teacher made activities for each grade level. "This teaching style emphasizes student-centered learning and there is much more responsibility placed on the students to take the initiative for meeting the demands of various learning tasks."Students tend to be more creative with this method; both the "gifted" group and my "particular needs" population. With another differentiated population I would demonstrate/model my expectations to the students."This type of teaching style works best for students who are comfortable with independent learning and who can actively participate and collaborate with other students." This style worked well with my "Science Club". As a "delegator": I may give students a choice in designing and implementing their own learning projects and I will act in a 'consultative' role. Depending upon the assignment I will "delegate" and have students work independently or in small groups. They must maintain their own motivation I plan my objectives so that the students learn more than just the "course specific topics". I expect them to be able to effectively work with group responses, sharing of ideas respectfully, and manage various assigned roles.Group sharing is managed with full focus on each student's final presentation. Some students required "formal authority" through differentiated instruction as content was my primary objective at the time. Glenna Calvin
